ADVENT: (Quickie) Snapshot & Whatnot


Chincoteague National Wildlife Reserve, VA


Waiting is a big part of Advent, something that at times is not the easiest thing to do (especially for impatient red-heads!) Here’s an arresting thought & prayer from my favorite Trappist monk for our minds & hearts to munch on this 3rd day of Advent.

“Teach us to wait, as we hang in the balance of the past and the possible.” Thomas Merton

grace, peace & inspired waiting

      Carol-Jo – me, too! Waiting, like patience, is not an easy endeavor. Methinks that’s why we need divine waiting classes to help us to eventually ‘renew our strength & mount up with wings as of eagles…’ (Isaiah 40:28-31) Blessings! βœ¨πŸ’œβœ¨πŸ€—βœ¨πŸ’œβœ¨

    We are now in the season of Advent, three Sundays more to go.

  4. Love the verse by Merton. Passing through with a tag on Richard Rohr and stayed around as I liked what I saw. Happily came across this Merton verse.

      Thank you, Rambling Rose – I surely like your name (have a thing for roses) & really like your blog, too. I’m also a groupie of Rohr & Merton (& Catherine Doherty who met w/ Merton before he became a monk.) Blessings back to you! 🌹✨🌟✨🌹
